Coward_Token on Koma, the other Komas, and their 100K coils

3 weeks ago

MrHighscore: You can put Endless Evil on an existing nonlegendary Koma clone (or Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, but not Sakashima the Impostor). As I said, kinda janky because it requires another card, although I can see a few more fun candidates: Ohran Frostfang, Prime Speaker Zegana (legend rule applies but you still get to draw), Spawning Kraken

ASalesman on Unesh, Ultimate Guide (Tribal)

2 months ago


Here is all the big changes I've made to this list, and an explanation for each. Guide edits will come in a little bit!

  • Replaced Burnished Hart with Mistwalker. Burnished Hart feels too slow, Mistwalker is a cheap sphinx that makes the deck go fast. Mistwalker is a nice addition because it benefits from the full 2 cmc reduction from Unesh. 1/3 and flying on Mistwalker makes it the best changeling when it comes to combat.
  • Replaced Guardian of Tazeem with Aetherflux Reservoir. Aetherflux Reservoir is a new win condition in this deck. With all of the added changelings and ability to bounce changelings to your hand, it is easier than ever to play a lot of spells on your turn. In addition to being a 50 lifepoint cannon at instant speed, it is the only lifegain in the deck. It can make up for all the health you lost from Mana Crypt and Ancient Tomb. Guardian of Tazeem's effect is underwhelming most of the time. Having the other cheaper sphinxes there is still 20% sphinx, and are easier to play.
  • Replaced Leyline of Anticipation with Narset's Reversal. Leyline's effect is honestly underwhelming at 4 CMC. It's great if it starts in your opening hand, but it is Force of Will fodder otherwise. Debatably it is worth for synergy with Sphinx of the Second Sun, but adding emergence zone (description below) gives you a cheaper Leyline effect at the cost of it only being one turn. One turn with the effect is all you need to win the game though, or to get very far ahead with Sphinx of the Second Sun. Narset's Reversal is a great card because it can be great in a counterspell war, but it can also be used to augment your other cards such as Frantic Search or High Tide or Ghostly Flicker. I love Narset's Reversal because it is great on it's own, but also sees some great synergy.
  • Replaced Myriad Landscape with Emergence Zone. Myriad landscape is noticably too slow, similar to burnished hart. The utility from Emergence Zone can be outstanding. Emergence Zone is a more easily accessible Leyline of Anticipation essentially. It is less mana to use at the price of using it for only a turn. Presumably the turn that you would use it you would also win the game, so you don't need it more than once anyway.
  • Replaced Treachery with Cloudstone Curio. Treachery is a clunky card that rarely resolves. If the mana doesn't untap after this card is played, it feels very bad. Cloudstone Curio is an engine in this deck. It really keeps the BFOF's coming. Playing this card with Universal Automaton on the field means you get to double all of your BFOF's that you play. Additionally, it works particualrly well with the newly added Aetherflux Reservoir.
  • Replaced Long-Term Plans with Chain of Vapor. If you are playing the deck right you are seeing enough of your deck to get your game winning cards without using long term plans. Long term plans also scuffs one of your BFOF's because your opponent knows which card it is. Chain of vapor has many uses. As well as being spot removal, it can be used to protect Unesh, and to return other cheap sphinxes to your hand to be played again which grants additional synergy with the Aetherflux Reservoir win condition.
  • Replaced Sphinx of Uthuun with Sakashima of a Thousand Faces. Sphinx of Uthuun is expensive for what it does. It will normally be chaper to play Sakashima, and it becomes a second Unesh which doubles all of your BFOFs rather than getting you an extra regular FOF. Having a second Unesh on the field also grants you protection from spot removal targetting only one Unesh.
  • Replaced Riddlemaster Sphinx with Bloodline Pretender. Riddlemaster Sphinx's ETB isn't as good as the others (Enigma Thief and Dream Eater). Bouncing one creature isn't super great because your sphinxes already have combat superiority most of the time. It feels expensive for what it does, which means it is too slow. Another cheap sphinx in this slot speeds up the deck, and provides extra synergy with the other added cards.
  • Replaced Island with Lotus Field. I want to try this out. I am skeptical that it is actually better than an Island, but we will see! Let me know what you think here.
  • Replaced Island with Sea Gate Restoration  Flip. Becasue why not really? Worst case scenario, you pay 3 life to have it enter as an untapped island. Having it your hand later game can get you a lot of cards in a pinch.
  • Replaced Imprisoned in the Moon with Gilded Drake. Gilded drake is 1 mana cheaper. It not only takes your opponents creature away from them, it also gives it to you, at the cost of them having a 3/3 flyer. In cEDH this trade is insanely good for you. Imprisoned in the moon can be removed to return the creature back to their side. Nothing happens when Gilded Drake dies. He can also be easily blocked by one of your sphinxes, which means it might be chip damage to a different opponent. To me Gilded Drake is a no brainer here.

first deck of commander i ever had in my life i got some proxys like Mana Crypt and others ehh i tried to make it demon tribal and exploit the blue color to make copies, this is the deck i have irl and i know i need Sakashima of a Thousand Faces butt i dont have it ehhh the best way to describe this deck is try to dont die by your own card effects and pray to chaos that u will Spark Double into anything is a really powerhouse if can copy Be'Lakor, the Dark Master also Master of Cruelty for some extra spicy stuff. i also named Great Unclean One "dirty dan" and Phantasmal Image "pin head" becouse they are best friends they work very good together. have fun i need some enchantment remobal sorry for the bad typing its 5am here and im very tired xoxo

The cost is a bit mana heavy, but Nephalia Smuggler can give you nice Instant-speed repeatible bounce for Pramikon. Displacer Kitten is another option.

You could double your Pramikons, declare right AND left, then no one gets to attack. Possible methods: Helm of the Host, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, and Spark Double.

Thanks for the comment, I wasnt expecting that for a deck I'm not playing at the moment. I changed my polymorph deck to izzet with Sakashima of a Thousand Faces and Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh as commanders.

The thing i love about polymorph is

a) you never know what u get, every game is a different one

b) you have a lot of space in the 99 for interaction, counters, removals

c) the most polymorph spells are removal-spells aswell if i cant use them for my board..

To im_just_a_lamp_bro,

That’s an interesting suggestion. I’ll have to play around with it. Thanks for stopping by!

To God-Eternal-Magic-Player,

Mirror Box was in the list at one point. However, it was cut for a few reasons. First, this deck doesn’t favor artifacts, for the most part. The four that are in the list have a major impact which offsets the fact that artifacts are the least fetchable cards in this list. Second, Mirror Box was just a bad Sakashima of a Thousand Faces. Sakashima has a similar textbox as Mirror Box and provides a Clone-effect. Lastly, Mirror Box is just better in 60 card formats where you’ll see multiple copies of the same card. You can run it in your list, but it was extremely cuttable with no regrets for me. Thanks for stopping by!

RNR_Gaming on Simic stompy?

Honestly, Kamahl, Heart of Krosa and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces is likely what you're looking for. They stomp; most other simic commanders lend themselves better to a tactile combo/landfall strategy with some cool top end pay off but stumpy is all about playing fat things and swinging with fat things.
